The son of a glassblower, William Warmus has spent his life around glassmakers and glass
masterpieces. He was the curator of modern glass at The Corning museum of Glass, editor
of Glass Quarterly, and is the author of more than a dozen books and over a hundred essays.
In 2012, his writing appeared in books about Dale Chihuly, Bertil Vallien, and Narcissus Quagliata.
The True History of Glass, an overview of the art, history, and sociology of contemporary glass,
will appear in 2013. This lecture explores the fascinating history of glass from its beginnings to
its modern development, from Tutankhamen to Tiffany, Chihuly, and beyond.
